China Cabinet Update (Sooooo Late, I know)

Susan's phone March, 2013 683

After trying each of these different wrapping papers out, I chose the top one shown above.

Design Chosen!

This was super easy.  I used removable poster tape so when I take it down later there shouldn’t be any damage.

And here is the final product!  Well…not exactly final since I don’t have everything put back into the cabinet in this picture.  I guess I got impatient in my picture taking.

I think this was a big improvement over having it plain.  I’ve seen this exact china cabinet painted and it looked pretty nice, however I think I will leave mine in it’s original state and spruce up the interior now and then for a little character which can easily be changed.  I bought this at a consignment shop a few years ago and fell in love with it just the way it is!

In an effort to put some of the many ideas I’ve found on Pinterest to good use, I went shopping today and found these 3 contenders for wrapping paper that I plan to place on the back panel of the china cabinet you see in the background.  I also found the cool picture frame for 1/2 off and decided I need more color in my life.  It’s going to look great hanging in my office.

My china cabinet seems so dark that you can hardly make out some of the things I’ve got in there so I’m thinking something light will definitely help.  It’s hard to see in the picture but the middle contender is a light tan paper that has a pretty little repeating design of white circles with flowers inside the circle.  It also has a dab of silver glitter inside the center of each repeating design.  Not sure how I feel about the glitter yet.

I’m thinking the blue design is too busy.

I am liking the brown with the black design though, very pretty.

It’s a toss-up between the really light colored one in the middle and the brown with the black design.  Which do you prefer?
